Orlando Pride's six goals marked the largest margin of victory and the most goals in a single game in the club's history. Marta, who scored two of those goals, now leads the club's all-time scoring list with 35 goals. Other highlights of the match included Summer Yates, who scored her fourth goal of the season, and Ally Watt, who netted her second goal in injury time.

The defensive performance was also outstanding, with goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse adding four saves and achieving her sixth clean sheet of the year. Moorhouse is one game away from breaking her own record for games without conceding a goal in a season. Striker Barbra Banda shone once again, scoring her ninth and tenth goals of the season, becoming the first NWSL player to reach double figures in goals this season.

Seb Hines, coach of the Orlando Pride, stressed the importance of this victory, especially if you look at the team's performance in the past, which went through ups and downs: "The players did this and put on a real show for the fans and supporters who have supported us and gone through times of adversity over the eight years. That performance sums up what this team stands for and the determination, their courage and their relentlessness to go for it and achieve a comprehensive victory," she said.

Brazilian queen Marta knows exactly what Hines meant. In her seven years at the club, she has never felt such a sensation, and she sees milestones and milestones being broken.

"I've never experienced these moments in Orlando with this team. Of course, I'm very happy and proud of the team for everything we've done and shown together on the pitch. I think everyone thinks about the last two games and we weren't satisfied with the performance and we didn't score enough, especially in the last game. I think we've done a good job when we talk about defending and when we go on the attack we go with passion and the desire to score, so I think that makes a big difference for us," said the owner of the number 10 shirt.

With a 14-game unbeaten streak at the start of the year and 15 last season, the Pride continue to show their strength and consistency in the NWSL. The team, now more united and determined than ever, is looking to maintain this impressive form as it prepares for the next challenges in the league.
